The inaugural Giants of Africa Festival brought together 250 youth from 16 African nations to Kigali, Rwanda for a week-long celebration of basketball, education, culture, and entertainment.
The unforgettable experience is one that we will never forget, empowering our youth and the inspiring giants within all of us.
250 Girls and boys
Boys and girls from across the continent participated in a three day basketball camp hosted by Giants of Africa coaches, then competed for their country in a two day tournament.
Day during camp, the youth campers heard from key industry leaders in the world of sports, entertainment, politics and business as they shared their compelling stories and insights on topics including leadership, female empowerment, turning ideas into action, professional development, and investing in yourself and your community.
